Tax Credit

 

HERE’S YOUR CHANCE

Arizona tax law (ARS 43-1089.01) allows taxpayers a credit for contributions made or fees paid to a public school for support of extracurricular activities or character education (as defined in ARS 15-719). The credit is equal to the amount contributed or the amount of fees paid. However, the credit cannot exceed $200 for a single taxpayer or head of household. For married taxpayers who file a joint return, the credit cannot exceed $400. If married taxpayers file separate returns, each spouse may claim 1/2 of the credit that would have been allowed on a joint return.

YOU NEED NOT BE PRESENT TO WIN

The tax credit is available to all State of Arizona tax payers, regardless of whether they have children in school. Contributions from businesses are always welcome; however, such contributions cannot be used to obtain a tax credit.

IT’S YOUR CHOICE

You may contribute less than $200 and be eligible to receive the state tax credit in the amount of your contribution. The amount you contribute – up to $200 (or $400 per married couple) – will be the amount you may claim as a state tax credit. For example, if you contribute $50, your state tax credit will be $50.

Just return your check made payable to PVUSD #69, along with the Response Card, to the La Casa de Cristo front office no later than Sunday, December 6. All checks will be delivered to Palomino and Campo Bello schools that week. The school district will mail you a receipt during January, 2021.

A CONTRIBUTION GETS THE MONEY WHERE IT NEEDS TO GO

Contributions that are eligible for a tax credit go directly to the school, not to the state and not even to the school district. The funds are not subject to the revenue control limit that prevents schools from spending more than a fixed amount for programs. Your contribution will go exactly where you want it to – immediately helping more students become involved in fun, meaningful, life-enhancing activities.
